MONROE, Mich. - La-Z-Boy will build a 16,000-square-foot store in Union Township, Ohio, part of its plan to grow and reformat its retail segment.
Groundbreaking is slated for early October and the opening for March 2018, a company spokesperson said. The corporate-owned store will total 15,810 square feet.
In the company’s earnings release, Kurt Darrow, La-Z-Boy president and CEO, said, “In addition to opening new stores, we are working to upgrade the entire network of stores by remodeling older stores into the new concept design format, which is a more modern format and a better representation of the brand today.
